  1. Problems printing PDF after Windows 10 update, works with Adobe but not Edge etc.


    Hi


    Many at my work have trouble printing PDF-files after the latest major Windows 10 update. It worked earlier this summer but now very many cant get their PDF to the printers.

    The standard PDF-viewer is set to Edge after update, so all PDF-files opens up automatically in Edge and the new black-looking-printer-window appears when pressing CTRL+P to print, printer is installed correct and everything. But when users press print the file it queued at the printer but just disappear from queue without printing.

    Printing other files is OK.


    If i install Adobe Reader and print within Adobe the PDF-files print without problems. What ive noticed is that Adobe has its own standard white-looking-printer window instead of the black one i get in Edge and other programs.

    Anyone got an explanation for this problem? Anything i can do besides get everyone to use Adobe instead?


    Note: ive also tried other PDF-readers but problem is still there when the printer-windows is as it is in Edge(black-style)

    :)

    MS Edge does not print to Adobe PDF, following FCU


    Since installing FCU, MS Edge (my default browser) does not print to “Adobe PDF”. All other apps, including ie 11, have no problem printing to the “Adobe PDF” printer. There was no problem, with Edge before FCU.
    MS Edge does print with no problem to “Microsoft Print to PDF”, to my HP LaserJet and to "Microsoft XPS Document Writer".

    I already did both Repair and Reset of Edge (Settings > Apps > Microsoft Edge > Advanced Options), with no luck!

    Does anyone else experience the same problem? Is there a solution to that?

    And a little background:
    Windows 10 Pro x64, Version 1709 Build 16299.309
    Microsoft Edge Version 41.16299.248.0
    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, (Classic Track) Version 2015.006.30417

  3. Unable to print a Microsoft Edge webpage to PDF using adobe acrobat

    We seem to be caught in a **** match between Microsoft and Adobe. Neither one will address the problem. I suggest you use the PDF printer that comes with Windows 10, "Microsoft Print to PDF" since it works well with EDGE.

    MS Edge does not print to Adobe PDF, following FCU


    First of all, a big thanks *Thumbs to @Caledon Ken for taking the time to propose a solution.

    Following his recommendation, I tried both solutions offered in the adobe forum, but none of them worked:

    1. https://forums.adobe.com/message/7942382#7942382 (did not work at all)
    2. https://forums.adobe.com/message/7943399#7943399 (started printing but the small page I tried to print, got stuck in the print spooler, for ever!)

    So to I had to clear the print spooler and as always Shawn @Brink to the rescue, with his “Reset and Clear Print Spooler in Windows 10” tut.

    Print spooler, was cleared.

    Went back to my Adobe PDF printer and reset it, to what it was before trying the above recommendations:

    (a) Devices and printers > Adobe PDF printer > (right click) PRINTER PROPERTIES > Advanced tab - 'Spool print documents so program finishes printing faster' and 'Start printing immediately'.

    (b) Devices and printers > Adobe PDF printer > (right click) PRINTING PREFERENCES > Adobe PDF Settings > unchecked 'Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts'

    Case closed!
    Apparently, the print spooler was stuck from some previous unsuccessful printing attempt and clearing it, solved the problem and now Edge prints to Adobe PDF with no problem.

    I hope that helps somebody else, with the same problem.
